Global tabloid magnet Kim Kardashian has given a boost to a number of sex toy makers after including their products in her Valentine’s Day Gift Guide. The list, which can be found on her website, includes products such as Lelo’s Intima Silk Blindfold and Flickering Touch Massage Candle, the Fifty Shades of Grey Sweet Sting Riding Crop, the Iroha Yuki massager, the Lovelife Share Couple’s Ring Vibe, the Let’s F**k board game, a dance pole, and a Candy G-string.
There are also opportunities on the site to purchase romantic treats ranging from a $25 bottle of bubble bath to a $10,000 bottle of champagne.
If the quantity of a person’s Twitter followers is any guide to their influence, we expect sales of the products to be brisk as Kardashian currently has an astonishing 39.9m – more than NASA and BBC News combined – people gawping at her outpourings on the social media platform and she has already tweeted her list several times. It has also been discussed at great length, with gratuitous mentions of her “famously full derriere and ample cleavage”, by media outlets such as the Daily Mail.
